Insert signature field into word document, to avoid creating signature box in Acrobat each time

Is there a way to insert a signature field/box into a word document that is recognized by Acrobat such that when it is exported from word to PDF format that Acrobat will recognize that field and when I click "Certify (Visible Signature)" I will not need to redraw the box everytime? 

 

Ideally I would like to insert this field into the word document once and continue to use the same word file for multiple different letters.  Then export to PDF format, open in Acrobat, clicked Certify with visible signature and be able to approve the signature without having to draw the box for the signature each time.

 

Thank you 🙂

While that's not possible, you can add a signature field to either a pre-defined location on a page, or based on some type of (textual) marker, using a script. The script can be attached to a menu item or a Custom Command and executed with a single click.
